Summer Steps for Healthy Living

Homeopath, Solan
Summer Steps for Healthy Living

In the warmer, longer, laziest days of summer, the living may to be easy but your life probably feels less chaotic.

Give Your Diet a Berry Boost

If you do one thing this summer to improve your diet, have a cup of mixed fresh berries -- blackberries, blueberries, or strawberries -- every day. They'll help you load up on antioxidants, which may help prevent damage to tissues and reduce the risks of age-related illnesses. Blueberries and blackberries are especially antioxidant-rich.

A big bonus: Berries are also tops in fiber, which helps keep cholesterol low and may even help prevent some cancers.

Floss Daily

You know you need to, now it's time to start: floss every single day. Do it at the beach (in a secluded spot), while reading on your patio, or when watching TV -- and the task will breeze by.

Flossing reduces oral bacteria, which improves overall body health, and if oral bacteria is low, your body has more resources to fight bacteria elsewhere. Floss daily and you're doing better than at least 85% of people.

Get Outside to Exercise

Pick one outdoor activity -- going on a hike, taking a nature walk, playing games such as tag with your kids, cycling, roller blading, or swimming -- to shed that cooped-up feeling of gym workouts.

And remember, the family that plays together not only gets fit together -- it's also a great way to create bonding time.

Be Good to Your Eyes

To protect your vision at work and at play, wear protective eyewear. When outdoors, wear sunglasses that block at least 99% of ultraviolet A and B rays. Sunglasses can help prevent cataractscataracts, as well as wrinkles around the eyes.

And when playing sports or doing tasks such as mowing the lawn, wear protective eyewear.

Vacation Time!

mprove your heart health: take advantage of summer's slower schedule by using your vacation time to unwind.

Vacations have multiple benefits: They can help lower your blood pressureheart rate, and stress hormones such as cortisol, which contributes to a widening waist and an increased risk of heart disease.

Aloe Vera Ke Fayde Aur Nuksan - एलोवेरा के फायदे और नुकसान

एलोवेरा  एक  रसीला  पौधे है  और  इसके  पत्तों  में  पानी  का  भंडार  है,  जो  मोटी  और  मांसल  हैं। इसकी पत्तियां दो पदार्थ उत्पन्न करती हैं - जेल, जो कि कई अन्य पोषक तत्वों में मिश्रित होती है, और रस, जिसे एलो लेटेक्स भी कहा जाता है। एलोवेरा जेल व्यापक रूप से सनबर्न को दूर करने और घावों को ठीक करने के लिए जाना जाता है। जेल आमतौर पर कच्चे रूप में और सीधे प्रभावित त्वचा पर लगाया जाता है। एलोवेरा जेल त्वचा के लिए बहुत फायदेमंद हो सकता है, धूप की कालिमा, कीट के काटने, चकत्ते, कटौती और घावों के साथ मदद कर सकता है। यह एंटिफंगल, जीवाणुरोधी है और कोशिकाओं के उत्थान में मदद करता है। एलोवेरा  लेटेक्स  का  स्वाभाविक  रूप  से  अवसाद,  कब्ज,  अस्थमा  और मधुमेह  के  इलाज  के  लिए  प्रयोग  किया  जाता  है।
एलोवेरा में कई विटामिन और खनिज शामिल हैं जो शरीर के सभी प्रणालियों के उचित विकास और कार्य के लिए महत्वपूर्ण हैं।


एलोवेरा के लाभ:
1. झुर्रियों से मुक्त त्वचा के लिए: 
इसमें त्वचा, शरीर और स्वास्थ्य के लिए बहुत से लाभ हैं। एक शानदार एंटी-बैक्टीरिया, अनुत्तेजक पौधे के रूप में काम करने के अलावा, यह झुर्रियों से छुटकारा पाने में भी मदद करता है। यह त्वचा को मॉइस्चराइज करने में मदद करता है और त्वचा से मृत कोशिकाओं को हटाता है।
2. कब्ज से राहत: एलोवेरा का रस पीने से पेट और आंतों में जलन को कम करने में मदद मिलती है। इसका रस चिड़चिड़ा आंत्र सिंड्रोम, कोलाइटिस और आंत के अन्य सूजन संबंधी विकारों में सूजन को कम कर सकता है। इसके अलावा, यह आंतों में स्वस्थ बैक्टीरिया बढ़ा सकते हैं जो पाचन में मदद करते हैं।
3. मुँह के छाले को ठीक करता है: यदि इससे मूह के छल्लों पर दिन में कई बार लगाया जाए तो चिकित्सा प्रक्रिया को गति देने में मदद करता है।
4. कोलेस्ट्रॉल के स्तर को कम करता है: एलोवेरा रस में बीटा (β) सीटिस्टरोल नामक एक यौगिक होता है, जो शरीर में कोलेस्ट्रोल स्तर को कम करने में मदद करता है।
5. प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को बढ़ावा देता है: एलोवेरा में मौजूद ब्रैडीक्नास प्रतिरक्षा प्रणाली को उत्तेजित करता है और संक्रमण को मारता है। एलोवेरा में जस्ता भी शामिल है, इससे हमें रोगों को बंद करने, जीवाणुओं को मारने और हमारे सेल झिल्ली के कार्य की रक्षा करने में मदद मिलती है। 
6. तनाव कम कर देता है: एलोवेरा को एक अनुकूलन माना जाता है। एलोवेरा का रस न केवल मानसिक तनाव से राहत देता है बल्कि शारीरिक तनाव से निपटने में भी मदद कर सकता है। 
7. यह मधुमेह के इलाज में मदद करता है: एलोवेरा रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को कम करने के लिए जाना जाता है। इसमें ग्लूकोमान्स मौजूद हैं जो रक्त शर्करा के स्तर को कम कर देता है।
8. एंटीसेप्टिक है: यह आपकी पाचन तंत्र को साफ करने में मदद करता है। यह खून को शुद्ध करने में भी मदद करता है। 
9. रक्त प्रवाह में सुधार: एलोवेरा आपके केशिकालों के आकार को बढ़ाने में मदद कर सकता है जिससे आपके शरीर में रक्त परिसंचरण में सुधार हो सकता है।
 

एलोवेरा रस के दुष्प्रभाव:
एलोवेरा जेल को इस्तेमाल करना सुरक्षित माना जाता है, लेकिन लेटेक्स से निकाले जाने वाले अप्रसारित रस का सेवन करने से कई साइड इफेक्ट्स पैदा हो सकते हैं, जैसे कि:
1. एलोवेरा रस में एन्थ्राक्विनोन नामक एक पदार्थ होता है, जो रेचक होता है और बड़ी मात्रा मंन डायरिया पैदा कर सकता है।
2. एलोवेरा में मौजूद लेटेक्स कोलाइटिस, क्रोहन रोग, एपेंडीसिटीस, डायवर्टिकुलोसिस, आंतों की बाधा, रक्त स्राव, पेट दर्द और अल्सर जैसी समस्याएं का कारण बन सकता ह ।
3. एलोवेरा का रस पीने से एलर्जी की प्रतिक्रिया हो सकती है जैसे कि त्वचा के दाने या पित्ती, खुजली या सूजी हुई त्वचा, साँस लेने में कठिनाई, सीने में दर्द और गले में जलन।
4. गर्भ और स्तनपान कराने वाली महिलाओं को अल्युवेरा जूस लेना सक्त मना है। यह गर्भवती महिलाओं में गर्भाशय के संकुचन को प्रोत्साहित कर सकता है, जिससे गर्भपात और जन्म दोष हो सकते हैं।
5. एलोवेरा के रस से शरीर को अत्यधिक मात्रा में एड्रेनालाईन उत्पन्न हो सकता है, जो दिल की स्थिति से पीड़ित लोगों के लिए हानिकारक हो सकता है।
6. लंबे समय तक की अवधि के लिए अतिरिक्त खपत स्यूडोममेलाइसोस कोली का कारण हो सकता है। यह कोलोरेक्टल कैंसर का खतरा बढ़ा देता है।
7. एलोवेरा रस की अधिक मात्रा में लेने से श्रोणि में रक्त का निर्माण हो सकता है, जिससे आपके गुर्दे को नुकसान हो सकता है।

Stay Healthy

When 24-year-old Erin learned that she had type 2 diabetes she simply could not believe it was true. This could never happen to her, she felt. The diagnosis must be wrong. During the next few weeks Erin was prescribed appropriate treatment, and given advice on self-managing her condition, to control symptoms and reduce the risk of long-term problems. But before too long it became clear that Erin was continuing to suffer symptoms. Her diabetes was clearly not under control.

Erin was eventually referred to our clinic, where we discovered why the standard therapeutic approach was not working for her. Deep down, she still did not believe that she had diabetes. When faced with pressures in her daily life – Erin had recently moved to another country to take up a demanding job – she would feel overwhelmed and simply stop managing her diabetes, which seemed much less important than the immediate issues facing her. We helped Erin to recognize and understand this pattern of behavior, and to learn to cope with her disease. She has now finally accepted that she has diabetes, and understands clearly that she can benefit by taking responsibility for her treatment, complying with instructions and adopting a healthy lifestyle.

Erin's case is by no means unique. Studies suggest that less than 50 percent of patients with a chronic disease follow their management plans correctly, for a wide variety of reasons. Many people with diabetes, for example, do not adhere to their prescribed diet or take their prescribed medication, resulting in poor metabolic control and a high risk of developing long-term complications.


Two major external factors influence the course of diabetes in an individual patient. Healthcare professionals control one of these when they establish a management plan, involving specific treatments, lifestyle modifications and regular assessment. The other factor, controlled by patients, is their ability to self-manage the disease, adapting the plan according to daily circumstances.

Few people – if any – will have this ability when diagnosed, and it is the responsibility of health professionals to help patients develop the necessary knowledge and skills. Patient education is widely recognized as vital for effective long-term care. However, its implementation is often inadequate, and too often it involves little more than putting information in front of the patient. Key issues for the patient, such as understanding the implications of the disease and learning how to incorporate its management into their day-to-day life, are sometimes not addressed.

Signs and symptoms of bile duct cancer

Signs and symptoms of bile duct cancer

Cholangiocarcinoma (Bile duct cancer), like any other cancer, leaves a person physically, mentally and emotionally drained. It has been mostly found to affect people above 60 years of age. The signs and symptoms associated are so common that very few people consult a physician. A delayed diagnosis implies delayed treatment. This goes on to aggravate and complicate the situation further. One needs to be a little alert. Any symptoms, no matter how common, should not be taken lightly. Look for the early signs and symptoms and bile duct cancer can be fully cured.

Signs and symptoms associated with Cholangiocarcinoma:
Bile duct cancer can be Extrahepatic (occurs in the duct outside the liver) or Intrahepatic (cancer develops within the smaller ducts inside the liver). It must be noted that Intrahepatic Bile duct cancer and Liver cancer are different.
-      Bile duct cancer results in blocking the bile duct. This blockage severely effects the secretion of bilirubin and bile from the liver. Thus, the secretions (bile and bilirubin) which are supposed to flow into the intestine move back into the bloodstream. An elevated level of bilirubin in the blood gives rise to a condition, known as Jaundice (a condition resulting in yellowing of the eyes and the skin). The problem lies in the fact that many other factors can equally contribute to Jaundice. Consulting a physician at the earliest is the best resort.
-      A sudden or drastic weight loss and loss of appetite is an alarming sign of Cholangiocarcinoma.
-      Excessive itching can be an indication of something as big as bile duct cancer. Itching can be an outcome of the increased bilirubin (blood) reaching the skin.
-      At an advanced stage of Cholangiocarcinoma, a patient may experience severe abdominal pain.
-      At times, the tumour in the bile duct might exert immense pressure on the nearby organs. This can give rise to an enlarged abdominal mass. Bloated feeling is also very common amongst the patients.
-      An unusual change in the colour of the stool and urine should not be neglected. The elevated bilirubin level from the intestine is usually eliminated out of the system through the urine.  Thus the stool appears lighter and the urine a shade darker.
-      A cholangiocarcinoma patient can, at times feel nauseated. Fever is also a common but an extremely important indication.

Bile duct cancer or cholangiocarcinoma can lead to many other complications. Click below to know every minute detail associated with Cholangiocarcinoma.

Lung Cancer - In A Nutshell!

Lung cancer is also known as pulmonary carcinoma or cancer of the lung. It occurs when DNA mutations develop in the cells/ tissues of the lungs leading up to uncontrolled growth in the tissues of the lung. By far, it is known to be the most common cancer in Asia.

1. Type: lung cancers can present as one of the following types: 

  1. Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer (NSCLC): Most common type of lung cancer and constitutes nearly 85% of all lung cancers. The sub-types of NSCLC are as follows:
    • Large cell carcinoma
    • Squamous cell carcinoma (SqCC) (Epidermoid)
    • Adenocarcinoma – accounts for majority of the NSCLC.
  2. Small Cell Lung Cancer (SCLC): It is also known as oat meal cancer and tends to spread (metastasize) quickly. This constitutes about 15% of the lung cancers.
  3. Mesothelioma: It is a rare cancer that develops in the mesothelial cells of the pleural or peritoneal surfaces. It usually arises in the pleural membrane lining the lungs, known as pleural mesothelioma. One that arises from the peritoneum is called the peritoneal mesothelioma and the one that arises from the pericardium is known as pericardial mesothelioma. Lastly, it can also arise from the tunica vaginalis known as testicular mesothelioma. People working with or prior exposure to asbestos are mostly at risk of developing mesothelioma. The latency period between time of exposure and development of mesothelioma can be somewhere between 20 to 40 years. Maximum of the patients who develop mesothelioma are men.

2. Gender: It affects the male populace predominantly. It is more common in men than in women and in those of lower economic status. However, the incidence of lung cancer, in women too, is on the rise of late.

3. Etiology: Cigarette/ Tobacco smoking remains the most important cause of lung cancer accounting for 85 – 90% of the cases. Incidence/ risk is proportionate to the number of cigarettes smoked irrespective of the age. Also, environmental toxins including smoke from burning black tar, exhaust gases from automobiles etc. too contribute actively to various lung diseases including cancer. People working in asbestos manufacturing factories who are exposed to asbestos dust are also likely to get lung cancer. Tuberculosis too is an additive risk factor. Again, people who have received ionizing radiation especially to treat Hodgkin Lymphoma or other malignancies also run the risk of developing lung cancer. Above-mentioned causes apart, genetic factors may also play a role.

4. Features: Lung cancer clinically presents in the following ways mainly.Signs & symptoms of malignant mesothelioma are as enumerated below

1. Difficult/ labored breathing (Dyspnea)

2. Chest pain

3. Palpable chest wall mass

4. Discordant chest wall expansion

5. Weight loss (Cachexia)

6. Loss of appetite (Anorexia)

7. Night sweats

Signs & symptoms of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) are as enumerated below. Majority of patients are symptomatic at diagnosis

8. Chronic cough

9. Difficult/ labored breathing (Dyspnea)

10. Chest pain

11. Blood stained sputum (Hemoptysis)

12. Hoarseness

13. Weight loss (Cachexia)

14. Loss of appetite (Anorexia)

15. Weakness

16. Bone pain

17. Pleural or pericardial effusion

18. Superior vena cava syndrome

19. Brachial plexopathy

20. Neurologic pain

21. Hypercalcemia of malignancy

Signs & symptoms of small cell lung cancer (SCLC) are as enumerated below

Symptoms as per the points 8 – 18 depicted above for NSCLC are applicable for SCLC as well. Additionally, patients suffering from SCLC may have:

22. Fever associated with chest infections like bronchitis/ pneumonia that refuse to go away or keep coming back

23. Horner syndrome

24. Paraneoplastic syndromes including encephalitis/ sub-acute sensory neuropathy, hyponatremia, acromegaly, cancer associated retinopathy, ectopic corticotropic syndrome etc all.

5. Screening: is generally recommended for asymptomatic/ symptomatic populations as surveillance for high risk individuals – who are either current or former smokers (quit smoking within the last 15 years), have at least a 30 pack year smoking history and those who do not have any prior history of lung cancer. The goal of screening, as usual, is to be able to detect & diagnose lung cancer at an early stage which is potentially curable. It is mostly radiologic with a low dose helical computed tomography (CT) scan being more effective in detecting early stage lung cancer than a chest radiograph can.

6. Diagnosis: Abnormal blood test results may be indicative of malignancy, but a follow up imaging/ biopsy is always the gold standard for accurate diagnosis. Following are the diagnostics employed mainly:

  1. Blood: Hb may be low, TLC, ESR and polymorphs increased. Adenocarcinomas are likely to express thyroid transcription factor 1 (TTF-1) or carcinoembyonic antigen (CEA). On the other hand, mesotheliomas are likely to express Wilms Tumor -1 (WT-1) protein and Calretinin.
  2. Imaging: Thoracoscopy, Bronchoscopy, X-Ray, CT Scan etc all. Positron Emission Tomography (PET) / CT scan and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) scan help detect metastasis, if any.
  3. Biopsy: It clinches the histologic diagnosis, and the nature of the disease.

7. Treatment: Conventional treatment includes surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy as contextually appropriate. Simultaneously, an adjunctive or integrative naturopathic treatment with suitable complementary & alternative medicines (CAM) too can help improve clinical outcomes and facilitate recovery as would be feasible contextually.

8. Prognosis: preventive measures, earlier diagnosis and right early treatment is key for an effective therapeutic management & better prognosis. Like most other cancers, the chances of cure for an early stage lung cancer are more. The cure/ recovery chances are influenced by the grade, stage of cancer, recurrence and the patient’s general health & vitality etc all. The primary determinant of prognosis in NSCLC is the stage at which the cancer is diagnosed. For non-metastatic cancers, however, it is the nodal status that determines the stage and hence the prognosis.

9. Prevention: rightly said, prevention is always a better choice. Cigarette smoking is to be avoided by all means as it is the single major cause of lung cancer. Even exposure to cigarette smoke (passive or secondhand) is also an established cause of lung cancer and is known to increase the risk of lung cancer in non-smokers as well. Preventing exposure to secondhand smoke can be helpful in decreasing the incidence and mortality from primary lung cancers. Above-mentioned apart, other important risk factors such as exposure to ionizing radiation, environmental carcinogens like smoke from burning black tar, exhaust gases from automobiles, outdoor air pollution, and occupational exposure to asbestos, arsenic, beryllium, nickel, cadmium, chromium etc all too are known to increase the risk for lung cancer and mortality thereof. In fact, cigarette smoking is known to potentiate the effect and hence the lung cancer risk of many of the above-mentioned carcinogens, multi-fold, in smokers. Thus, either eliminating or reducing the exposure to the above-mentioned carcinogens can lead to a decrease in the risk of lung cancer and incidences thereof. Furthermore, randomized clinical trials indicate that high intensity smokers (only) who take supplementation of beta-carotene have an increased risk/ incidence of lung cancer. Vitamin E supplementation, on the other hand, does not affect the risk of lung cancer as indicated by the trials. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor.

Myopia - Know The Ways It Can Be Treated!

Myopia - Know The Ways It Can Be Treated!

What Is Myopia (Nearsightedness)?

Myopia is a common refractive error of the eye that makes it difficult to focus on far away objects. People who are nearsighted will see objects close to them clearly, while those further away appear blurry. Myopia is natural. An overall longer shape of the eye usually causes myopia, so it is a naturally occurring visual problem that cannot be prevented. Nearsightedness tends to run in families, but you don't need to have a myopic parent to develop it. Myopia begins at an early age and worsens in the teenage years, but generally stabilizes in adulthood.

Here are the most common signs and symptoms of myopia:

  1. Objects far away, like a chalkboard or road signs, appear blurry
  2. Persistent need to squint or close eyelids to see clearly
  3. Headaches due to eyestrain
  4. Difficulty seeing while driving a vehicle, especially at night (night myopia)
  5. Need to sit closer to the television, movie screen or the front of the classroom
  6. Holding books very close while reading
  7. Not able to notice distant objects

Causes of Myopia

Nearsightedness happens when your eye is longer than normal, or, less often, when your cornea is too curved. It’s a problem in the focusing mechanism of the eyes. However, the exact cause of myopia is not known. Research about myopia supports two key risk factors:

  1. Family history. If one or both parents are nearsighted, the chance of their children developing it increases.
  2. Working up close. Myopia may be helped along by how a person uses their eyes. Intense detail work, long hours in front of a computer or reading can also increase the chances of developing myopia.

Treatment Options for Myopia (Nearsightedness)

When treating myopia, the goal is to help your eyes focus on far away objects. The most common way to achieve this is through

  1. Corrective glasses
  2. Contact lenses
  3. Refractive eye surgery, such as LASIK, is available for adults and those with moderate to high levels of nearsightedness

Adults who have developed cataracts may also have their myopia corrected with an intraocular lens (IOL) that replaces the human lens during cataract surgery. The most appropriate treatment depends on your eyes and your lifestyle. Nearsightedness can also be corrected as part of the cataract surgery procedure.

  1. Contacts and Glasses: Eyeglasses and contact lenses can correct myopia. However, they cannot stop the eye from growing longer or cure the irregular curve of the cornea that causes your blurry vision.
  2. Surgery: Surgery can decrease or eliminate dependency on eyeglasses and contact lenses. LASIK surgery is the most common type of surgery to correct myopia.
  3. ICL (intraocular collamer lenses) or phakic lensesIn adults with cataracts, is an option for those myopic patients who are not suitable for lasik surgery due to either less corneal thickness or very high myopia.
  4. Orthokeratology: A new type of treatment which offers an alternate solutions to people who are suffering from myopia. This is also known as Ortho-K. As a part of this procedure a person has to wear specialized lens overnight, to correct the vision for the next day. Orthokeratology is a process that uses specially designed GP contact lenses to temporarily reshape the contour of the cornea to reduce myopia (nearsightedness). In addition to the benefit of lens-free daytime vision, orthokeratology is starting to be appreciated for its ability to slow the progression of myopia. A number of published clinical studies have found that orthokeratology lens designs inhibit the growth of the eye's axial length, which determines the degree of myopia. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a ophthalmologist.

Amazing Health Benefits Of Bael Fruit

1. Bael fruit for constipation:

Fast foods that is very low in fiber is the main cause of constipation. Eating a traditional diet rich in fiber will treat constipation very effectively and if combined with home remedies will give the best results. Though fruits like bananas, mangoes helps people who suffer from constipation, bael fruit gives amazing results. Consume bael fruit regularly to get rid of constipation. The fruit is so full of fiber that it treats constipation very quickly. To eat, cut the fruit in half, sprinkle some brown sugar and enjoy it.

2. Bael fruit for ulcerative colitis:

A male about 35 years was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and doctors started steroid medications for him as his condition was worse. However despite taking steroids for weeks he kept having the flare ups. Finally the patient started looking up for alternate therapy and he found bael fruit. After taking bael fruit two times a day for a few weeks he could reduce the dosage and finally he was steroid free. After reading the incident, I was amazed at how a small fruit had saved the patient from so much pain. If you suffer from ulcerative colitis, please give bael fruit a try, as it does not have side effects.

3. Bael fruit for diabetes:

Bael fruit is good even for diabetics because bael fruit keeps the insulin level stable and even many doctors and nutritionist recommend bael fruit for diabetics. Bael fruit has an soothing effect on the stomach due to it's high fiber content. Try to include bael fruit in the diet in moderation. Too much of bael fruit will result in an upset stomach. If you are a dibetic try to eat it as a whole fruit, instead of juicing it.

4. Bael fruit juice for hair and skin:

Bael juice is one of the best way to keep our skin and hair healthy. Try making and drinking bael juice whenever you get fresh bael fruit. When buying bael fruit make sure to buy ripe bael fruit which smells ripe and sweet. To make the juice, first cut open the fruit like you do a coconut and scoop out the flesh. Add little water to the scooped out pulp and let it soak for a few hours. Boil the required jaggery with little water and strain using a fine strainer to remove impurities and let it cool. Now squish the fruit and water mixture with your fingers and then strain using a large holed strainer, as we don't want to strain out all the fiber from the juice. Now in a blender, take the strained juice, prepared jaggery syrup, a pinch of rock salt, a pinch of roasted cumin seed powder and a pinch of fresh black pepper. Blend everything together and serve it chilled in tall glasses. This juice apart from keeping the digestion in good order also keeps the skin and hair healthy and shiny.

5. Bael fruit for diarrhea:

In many parts of india, using bael to cure diarrhea is very common. The best thing about bael fruit is it is used to cure both dysentery and constipation. Treating both constipation and dysentery depends on the ripeness of the fruit. Ripe bael fruit is used to treat constipation and unripe bael fruit is used to treat diarrhea. To make the remedy, cut a unripe fruit and scoop out the pulp of a fruit. Boil a cup of water and add the scooped out unripened pulp and boil for a few minutes till it softens, strain and drink it warm. This decoction is very good for treating diarrhea. When selecting unripened fruit for using it in the remedy, make sure not to pick very unripe fruit.

6. Bael fruit for weight loss:

Bael fruit is also ideal for including in weight loss plan as it keeps the blood sugar stable and keeps us satiated for a long time due it's high fiber content. Try taking a bael fruit as an evening or a mid morning snack and it will tide us over till lunch or dinner without snacking. Bael fruit also is amazing for digestion related problems and keeps the digestion in keep order. The main key to natural weight loss is peak digestion which can be easily attained with these amazing natural foods. But please don't over consume bael fruit, especially if you are just starting to eat it, as you might get an upset stomach.

Behaviour Disorder in Teenagers

INDIVIDUAL/GROUP THERAPY FOR REMEDYING THREE TYPES OF SKILLS DEFICITS   

Many adolescents lack important skills that are essential for their academic achievement, personal development andfor their  effective social adaptation. In my 25 years of practice as psychologist and particularly in my therapy sessions with teenagers, I have come across more evidence in support of the behavior deficit model. This model considers skills deficit as a major root cause of psychological disturbance and social mal-adjustment. Skills deficit in adolescents are found to fall under three distinct categories. These three categories account for the vast majority of behaviors usually included under the term behavior disorders. All three patterns are maladaptive ( socially or individually). Each of the following three patterns also involve inter-personal alienation.

AGGRESSIVE TEENAGERS: They may be quarrelsome and generally irresponsible in their social interactions. They pick up fights easily and may disruptive and destructive in school or playground. They may be defiant of authority and lack feelings of guilt or remorse for wrong, unethical behavior.

WITHDRAWN TEENAGERS: Such teens may be generally overanxious and timid. They may get hurt easily and therefore very reluctant to interact with people. They may constantly complain of being victimized or teased. They lack self-esteem and self-confidence. They may go through feelings of depression and social anxiety and therefore may be seen as lonely and socially withdrawn.

IMMATURE TEENAGERS: They may be clumsy in their behavior. Usually they go around with younger playmates who have lower level of social skills. They may have short attention span and may engage in day-dreaming or even self-talk. They are too passive and socially incompetent. This may result in more criticism and ridicule from the peers.  

Social skills deficit in a common cause of adjustment problems in teenagers and college youth. If your teenage son or daughter is found suddenly losing interest in studies and getting low marks or found to be generally quiet and withdrawn, it is a good idea to get him/her assessed by a psychologist so that necessary remedial and preventive steps can be taken to enhance their personal growth and wellbeing.

Uric acid has got no relevance with this pain. Actually uric acid cause joint pain esp. Feet, toe,ankle, knee or wrist. Not such radicular pain. This is probably neuralgic pain. Go for MRI of Lumbar Spine or take a trial course of medicines.
